Greirat of the Undead Settlement is a NPC in Dark Souls 3. Greirat will occasionally ask if he can go and "steal" items for you that he will then sell you.
Greirat of the Undead Settlement Information
- Gives you the Blue Tearstone Ring and asks you to deliver it to Loretta in the Undead Settlement.
- Appears as a vendor with an expandable inventory during his questline.
- Initially locked in a cell, below the Tower on the Wall bonfire in High Wall of Lothric. You can find the Cell Key inside of the workshop below the Pus of Man which erupts on the rooftop. After heading down the ladder and defeating the Lothric Knight, follow the stairs at the end of the hall down to the base floor. Several Starved Hounds and Hollow Soldiers will be patrolling the area. The key is located at the back wall, down a flight of stairs which leads to a Starved Hound and eventual dead end.
- After accepting his request he appears at the Firelink Shrine as a vendor, asking you to remember about his request when talked to.
- You can find Loretta's Bone past the Undead Settlement bonfire. It is on a corpse hanging from the balcony of the first house the player will enter, overlooking a congregation in front of a burning tree.
- After delivering Loretta's Bone, he will tell the player to keep the ring, but other than that will not react. Once the world is reset, however, he will be in a curled up position and will give the player the Curl Up gesture, while remaining unresponsive. Once the player leaves and enters Firelink Shrine once more, he will ask for permission to scavenge for more items. He will return following the next boss kill and can return as early as after Curse-Rotted Greatwood.
You must visit the Undead Settlement after sending Greirat on his first mission to trigger him to leave the Firelink Shrine for the first time. If you are having trouble getting Greirat to leave Firelink, try warping to the Dilapitated Bridge bonfire, cross the bridge and make your way through the ruins to the Road of Sacrifices.
Steps that ensure Greirat's survival on his second scavenging quest (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley):
There are two characters who can save Greirat - but they both need the Catarina Armor Set. The first is the man who steals it - Unbreakable Patches. He can be found in the Cathedral of the Deep, and will trick you. If you confront him, and fall into his trap in the Firelink Shrine Belltower, and confront him again, he'll become a merchant. He'll also ask where Greirat went when he runs off to Irithyll, and actually owes the guy a favor. Telling him where Greirat went will ensure he'll be rescued by a "peculiar Onion Knight", in other words, Patches. You must send Greirat out to Irithyll and inform Patches of his destination before you defeat Pontiff Sulyvahn or he will cease to ask. Of course, if you buy the Catarina Set, Patches won't have a disguise to rescue Greirat , dooming him. [Tried this and Greirat was found dead in Irithyll: crossed the bridge, sent Greirat to Irithyll, told Patches about him (without purchasing Siegward's armor), then immediately killed the Old Demon King] (Greirat returned safely when I tried: crossing the bridge, sent Greirat to Irithyll, told Patches about him (without purchasing Siegward's armor), then immediately killed Pontiff)
Siegward of Catarina is the other character who can save Greirat, but he'll need his armor for that. After encountering Patches at the Cathedral of the Deep, you can find Siegward - armorless and stuck in a well outside the Cleansing Chapel Bonfire. If you did buy the armor from Patches, you'll need to throw it down to Siegward so he can get out. He'll escape on his own. Do not yet proceed towards the Irithyll Dungeon, because if you do, Siegward of Catarina will leave Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, and will not be around for saving Greirat's life - if you do, Greirat would die upon vanquishing another boss.
- Don't explore Irithyll Dungeon you can trigger the first bonfire, but any further and Greirat will die.
- If you owned Catarina Set from a previous walkthrough, Patches may not rescue Greirat on his own, in this case, give your armor set to Siegward and do NOT purchase Catarina Set from Patches until Greirat is rescued.
- As a fail save, be sure to clear out the Sewer Centipede before proceeding to defeat Sulyvahn.
- If you fail, Greirat's corpse will be found along with his ashes in the sewer area underneath the kitchen in Irithyll.
- I made it all the way to "Church of Yorshka" bonfire before I sent Greirat to plunder. After sending him I immeditely went to "Cleansing Chapel" bonfire to give Siegward his armour before continuing on in Irithyll. I lit the "Distand Manor" bonfire, met Siegward in the kitchen and then after killing Pontiff Sulyvahn, Greirat was alive and well.
Greirat's Third Outing (Lothric Castle)
He will request to leave for a third time to Lothric Castle. He will die if he goes; there is no way to save him. Patches will ask where Greirat went, but this only causes Patches to disappear for a time. Patches will return later and add one Hidden Blessing to his shop inventory, while failing to save Greirat. Greirat's Ashes can be found on the roof at the Grand Archives, after jumping down where you see a group of Corvians. Giving Greirat's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid will allow her to sell Exploding and Splintering Bolts, along with every other item he used to sell. Additionally, items which were sold by both NPCs (like Firebombs) are overwritten by Greirat's lower prices (50 souls for a Firebomb, instead of 100).
- Greirat's Ashes will only unlock the wares that he was selling before he died.
- Killing Greirat while both Patches and Greirat are in Firelink Shrine will make Patches hostile toward you.
- Greirat's ashes and a Bandit's Knife upon death. (Doesn't drop a Bandit Knife if bought at least once)
- Blue Tearstone Ring (unless he has already given it to you)

First encounter (High Wall of Lothric)
"Ahh, you're no jailer are you? No, no, you're from far away. And judging by the bell... You must be some of that unkindled ash. Remarkable, if that's true, then i have a favour to ask. Below the High Wall is a musty little town. Not the home of any lord, just a very old settlement of Undead. An old woman, Loretta, lives there. Please give her this ring. I- I am not asking for charity. In fa- in fact if you do this for me... I'll be sure to repay you in kind. I-I may be a petty thief, but I've more wits than most royalty. What do you say, then?"
[Refuse] "Yes, well, why should you? But if you change your mind, give me a shout, eh? I-I'm only a petty thief. I've nowhere else to go. Not like there's anything calling to me out there.. heh"
[After Refusing] "Oh, what have we here? Changed your mind perhaps? You deliver the ring, and I offer my co-operation. Hardly a shabby deal, hm?"
[Grant Request] "Very Well. I humbly place my faith in you. I am Greirat of the Undead Setlement, and I promise to assist you. Give this ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall. ...Do your part, and I'll do mine."
[Attacking him] "Cold piss, what the devil is it now? I get caught once, and now this! One bloody time! Curse the gods!"
[You die] "As they say, "The cornered rat will lick the balls of a cat." "
[Killing him] "(Forgive me, mother.) Forgive me, dear..."
Second encounter (Firelink Shrine)
"Oh, hello, you're back. And in one piece. Well, now it's time I do my part. Whatever trinket you need, speak up. Just don't ask me where I got them."
[Talk] "Do me a favour, and don't forget our promise. Give the [this] ring to old Loretta at the base of the High Wall. A nuisance, I know, but it'll help me tie up some loose ends."
Give Loretta's Bone
"Heavens, she was already dead... Thank you. I-I'm not surprised, though. Hmm, almost a relief, really. You can keep the ring. As, well, a little trinket of thanks, I suppose."
[Leave] "Goodbye, and stay safe. Oh, this place is a bore. What good is thievery if you've nowhere to go?"
[Attacking him] "You're heading for the brink aren't you? Well I won't let you drag me down! En guarde, you crusty ash bastard!"
[You die] "Cold piss, why did it come to this..."
[Killing him] "(Cries) I've gone and run my course, haven't I?"
Pillage (Undead Settlement)
"Ah, there you are. I was thinking... You know I'm a petty thief. Well, perhaps I'll go on the prowl. Everyone's dead or hollowed away anyway, right, so... I might as well fetch some weapons or treasure for you. Well, what do you say?"
[Refuse] "All right, fine and well. If that's your wish I can only obey. But, feel free to change your mind later. I wouldn't want to lose my touch..."
[Talk] "What is it? Have you changed your mind? I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."
[Send him to pillage] "Thank you. You will not be disappointed. Greirat the Thief was once a well-known name. Until I ended up rotting in a cell..."
[Leave] "Good-bye. I will leave for some time. So long for now. Do stay safe, you hear? Or my efforts will have been for naught."
[Return] "Oh, hello, you've come at a good time. It took some prowling, but I've finally made a score. Go on, have a gander."
Pillage (Irithyll of the Boreal Valley)
"Ahh, hello, fine work, I say. Discovering Irithyll in the Boreal Valley, all in a day's work. If the tales are true, it is home to old moon-worshipping nobles, and should be packed with treasure. What do you think? Shall I go and see what I can find?
[Refuse] "All right, fine and well. If that is your wish, I can only obey. But, feel free to change your mind later. I hate to leave a city of nobles ripe for the picking..."
[Talk] "What is it? Changed your mind? I'm ready to go thieving at a moment's notice. Just give me the word."
[Send him to pillage] "Mm, a fine choice! I am greirat, the thief. What I bring back will be worthy of that name."
[Return] "Oh, then, we are both safe and sound. Thank the gods for that. I don't like cutting things so close. I might've died if it wasn't for that peculiar onion knight. But in the end, it all paid off. Take a good look. They're sure to be of some use."
Pillage (Lothric Castle)
"You know, I was thinking... About leaving for another round of thieving. There must be something of use in Lothric Castle. I-I'm aware of the danger. That castle is a death trap. Not a single man has returned from the castle unscathed, even back in the day. But I don't want sit around and die a petty rat. And I consider myself your friend."
[Refuse] "Right, fine. You're very thoughtful, you are. But, if you change your mind, do speak up. I meant every word of what I said."
[Talk] "Changed your mind? I hope you do. I lived a petty rat, but would rather not die as one."
[Send him to pillage] "Thank you, for placing your trust in me. Oh, don't you worry. I know Lothric like the back of my hand."
- Voice actors, chracter inspirations, fan art, cosplay goes here.
- The hat he is wearing is a Thrall Hood. It is said that people who wear the Thrall hood are either slaves or criminals,
- When Patches takes residence in the Firelink Shrine he mentions that Greirat did him a good turn in Lothric Dungeon.
- Selling him the Blue Tearstone Ring after giving him Loretta's Bone does not change his dialogue.
